Glass bead making techniques?

I make glass beads (lampworked) and I am looking for a site that shows you various different techniques to get different effects on a bead..I have a few books, they are ok, but not as good as expected…

    I am a glass bead maker and one of the best resource for glass beadmakers is definately one of two places. Both have tutorial sections, show and tells, critiques, and wonderful people who will share their knowledge with you.

    1. Glass Forums at Wet Canvas!
    2. Lampwork Etc. Forums

    Have you looked on youtube? Many craftworkers have posted videos of themselves working on projects. I have been looking at diverse sites – for instance there are more than 20,000 videos of people folding origami paper! There might be something there. Just had a look – yes, there are plenty.

    Try the book, “Beads of Glass,” by Cindy Jenkins. Cindy also has another book which I cannot remember the name of which came out prior to this one. Both are good.
    Become a member of ISGB, International Society of Glass Beadmakers. There’s a great forum there where you can ask questions.
